This past Thursday I had the pleasure of presenting for the Linked In .NET Users Group. The topic was TypeScript. My goal was to show how well TypeScript works to solve common problems in the enterprise to tackle it from the perspective of Return on Investment and how it scales teams, improves productivity, increases quality and reduces overhead. The talk is split between this discussion and hands on examples that cover the semantics while tying them back into the concept of large, parallel teams.
Here is the abstract of the talk followed by the video and deck.
In this talk, Jeremy Likness will explore the use of TypeScript in enterprise-scale applications. He’ll discuss not only the technological benefits of TypeScript but also explore the impact to the software development lifecycle overall. TypeScript enables a development workflow that helps scale development teams, improves quality and decreases ramp-up time. It also encourages a logical approach to software construction that results in more reusable and easily maintainable code.
